I paid my aunt a visit over the weekend and she and her her older brother concluded that I am aimless because:
1. I have decided to ditch an MBA programme this year to pursue my designing.
2. I left a 'regular' job without consulting them.
3. I refused an offer from them to get a customer service job in a big telecommunication company.
4. I sat on a bike for an out of city ride - how could I have done that?
Clearly, my Dad must be a very irresponsible parent because he supported every reason listed up there (ok, save for the forth which he said he was not too happy about).
It's safe to say that my aunt and uncle are very conservative and are not risk takers. OMG, i shudder to think what they will say when they see me with my permed hair all cut off and with a tattoo!! They do not understand that my path and happiness will not and can not be determined by material possessions....
To all you out there, all I say is if there's anything that interests you go ahead and go get it! Life is too short to be determined by the labels of family and friends. Be yourself!!!
